Zawe Ashton In Chalayan – Cosmopolitan Ultimate Woman Of The Year Awards

I’m not much of a TV buff (having only just caught up on ‘Downtown Abbey’) so I haven’t seen Zawe Ashton star in Channel 4’s ‘Fresh Meat’.

Apparently she is rather good in the TV series as Cosmopolitan crowned her ‘Best Newcomer’ at their Ultimate Woman Of The Year Awards, held at the V&A in London last night.

A spot on the BDOTW list could also be on the cards as she looked stunning wearing a Chalayan Fall 2012 gown.

The Hackney-born actress looked statuesque wearing a sultry forest-green one-sleeve gown with a daring plunging neckline, side slit and black satin draped detail over her other shoulder.

Having had a mild obsession with this Fall 2012 collection, I’m glad a piece has finally made it onto the red carpet and been presented so effortlessly.

Taupe pumps, a statement bracelet and a gold clutch completed her look.

    there are a lot of good things going on here, but not all quite there. Overall, very good, but not great.

    Others love it but it’s just too revealing for me, regardless of how beautiful she is. I do love the color, but not the style or the shoes.

    Gorgeous and yes, a BDOTW contender.

    Zawe is really fantastic (I’d seen her in Misfits and a few other things), I’m so glad to see her on this blog.

    This dress is gorgeous on her. I love this collection a lot and I’m glad to see more people wearing it. I also really love her hair!

    She TEACHES how to wear a plunging neckline amazingly well. WOW.

    I just can’t stand one-armed dresses like this. Always look like one sleeve was ripped off. And taupe shoes, really? They stand out, and not in a good way. Different shoes, and either two sleeves or none, I would have loved this look.

    Definitely going to have to check out this designer. I don’t like the shoes with this look but the rest is gorgeous! Perfect fit and lovely colour.

    Thanks, I hadn’t heard of ‘Fresh meat’ or properly checked out this Chayalan collection before. I hope she does make it on BDOTW list, bold and sexy but she still manages to look modern and elegant.
    I’d love for Naomie to wear something like this.

    This dress is gorgeous. I like Hussein Chalayan a lot.

    Amazing! Please make room for her on the BDOTW list (though I know it’ll be a tough task this week)!

    a pair of gold strappy sandals would have been absolutely perfect with this dress.

  12. Christine October 31, 2012 at 12:54 pm #

    She looks exquisite. I can see this up for BDOTW!

    The dress is just drop dead gorgeous. A 10.

      Truly stunning, BDOTW!!!!!

    I absolutely adore Zawe, her character on Fresh Meat dresses amazingly too and I’m so glad you featured her. She regularly wears Chalayan, she was on the Alan Carr show a few weeks ago in a Chalayan dress.
